SINGAPORE — A Singaporean man has been slammed by netizens for singing a Christian worship song while strumming his guitar on a plane.

The man has been identified as Jonathan Neo who was on an easyJet plane when he sang to the unsuspecting passengers during mid-flight, according to local media reports.

Neo claimed on social media that the flight pilot had introduced him and his fellow worshippers to the passengers, and that they sang in six languages.

His performance was caught on video and shared online, drawing a staggering 31 million views in just two days.

In the video, several individuals could be seen joining Neo in singing the song as he walked along an aisle to entertain the passengers. One male passenger who was seated looked expressionless when Neo walked past him.

The date of the flight and its destination are unclear.

Most of the online comments responding to the video appear to be negative. One netizen wrote, “As a person of faith, I implore you: don't do this…This kind of thing just turns people off, and rightly so.” while another wrote, “It's about courtesy & respect for others. Something you are obviously lacking in.”

But one person wrote in support of Neo’s action, saying, “I love Gospel music. Get some ear plugs if it bothers you.”
